Listen to the July show:

Today’s guest is Quána Madison who discusses Black people and disabilities. Quána shares her own experiences as someone who is disabled. She is an artist, mindfulness teacher, arts-based wellness workshop facilitator, and self-leadership coach. Expressive arts revived her soul after enduring cancer previvor treatments, surviving a near-death experience, and developing disruptive life-changing chronic illnesses. She combines inner wellness practices with expressive arts to promote physical, emotional, mental, and energetic well-being. A graduate of New York University and Colorado College, Quána holds a MA in Education and a BA in Philosophy.
